Karelia House is the result of a real passion for all things Scandinavian and a love affair with Finland Karelia House is a modern showroom with a unique shopping experience with a new Scandinavian style coffee shop and craft centre based in Highland Perthshire nr Kenmore, Scotland.

There is a wonderful selection of gifts including glassware from Iittala, Boda Nova and Muurla and the ubiquitous Marimekko bags, socks, nighties and kitchenware.  There are modern tableware and candle holders from the Swedish company, Farg Form, beautiful blankets from Klippan and fabulous colourful wooden jewellery from Aarikka.  This is the place to visit if you are looking for a gift for the person who you think has everything or the couple you want to buy an unusual wedding or anniversary present.

Karelia House is the ultimate destination which includes a range of woodburning stoves and log buildings.

Soon you will be able to relax and enjoy our new Scandinavian themed cafe which will offer Coffee and a selection of open sandwiches served with home made soup.

The new craft centre has so many inspirational materials -  fabulous yarns from Colinette, Noro, Mirasol, Arucania and they are not just about knitting  you can also use them for weaving or felting.  There is the most superb range of Stewart Gill paints for fabrics and other mediums and you will be shown all sorts of ways to create wonderful and exciting pieces – one of our courses, Tessellations, is so fabulous using the Stewart Gill paint in combination with some of our metallic threads from Superior threads.  The very latest selection of Bali Batiks is now on the shelves and we have all the essential ingredients including Superior’s King Tut and Rainbow threads to keep quilters and patchworkers busy and inspired.  Our selection of beads and bead making equipment and accessories is increasing almost daily as well as accessories and iridescent spray paints for paper and card.  We can even teach you how to make silk paper and then embroider it for a book cover!
